If you have macros which influence the meaning of forms you are
compiling, the macro needs to be loaded before you compile. What you
are reporting seems like a typical symptom of failing to load the
macro in question before compiling.

A workaround would be to make sure you eval the macro definition
before compiling.

I'm not sure what the bug really is. Perhaps it would be useful to get
a warning when compiling / evaling something when a macro +is+ in
effect and the file you are compiling is not pulling it in properly?
Then at least you get a hint to fix it while you still can, while
those who do it right will not experience any adverse effects.
